28th Traditional Canadian Lobster Dinner Coming Up


The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Hungary will host its annual Lobster Dinner for the 28th time at the ballroom of the Hotel InterContinental Budapest on November 12. The event has become one of Budapest’s most significant business networking events over theyears, not least because it features fresh lobster directly imported from Nova Scotia, Canada.

According to the chamber, “This is a fun and equally meaningful networking experience for Hungarian and expat company leaders, executives and business people. [...] The atmosphere at this prestigious international event is set by live music, exciting raffle items and a silent auction. The icing on the cake is undoubtedly the fresh and delicious lobster straight from Canada.”

The province of Nova Scotia is known as the “lobster capital” of Canada, where lobster fishing has been the foundation of the economy for local fishermen since the 1800s. The Canadian Chamber says it is “proud” to support this sustainable fishing model, with more than 300 lobsters caught by Nova Scotian fishermen shipped by air to The Netherlands. After a couple of days’ rest, they will arrive directly (and fresh) at the InterContinental Budapest’s kitchen.

The Canadian Lobster Dinner event attracts hundreds of Hungarian and expat businesspeople each year. While there are many returning guests, the chamber is happy to welcome new guests as well.

“We are proud to have many guests who have been coming to our lobster dinner for years, even decades, but we also welcome new faces, as we want as many people as possible to get to know who we are and what we do,” says Judit Lovas, CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Hungary.

“Our aim is to help business leaders build a truly effective business network that goes even beyond borders and ultimately helps them to thrive,” she adds.

More information about the event and a link to the registration page can be found on the chamber website, ccch.hu. There is also a (Hungarian-language only) video on its YouTube channel; search on the platform for Canadian-Hungarian Chamber of Commerce.
